Ultra Q Review: Episode 8 The Terror of Sweet Honey
This episode start off with a man breaking into a green house but he flees runs away because the green house holds a special breed of bees. Shortly after the break tremors and earthquakes begin happening in the area nearby. We learn after a train crash that the bees in the green house produce a special honey that cause rapid growth and that a mole managed to get into the green house when the glass was broken and eat some of the bees. The mole quickly became gigantic and was soon referred to as Mongular the giant mole.
After we investigation we find out that one of the men who worked with the man developing the these bees was the one that purposely broke into the green house to try and sabotage the operation out of jealousy. The man was jealous that his colleague was getting a lot of praise and recognition for this scientific break through in growth. Realizing his mistake the man attempts to go into Mongulars cave and blow him up with TNT. The TNT unfortunately does not do the job meaning that the man sacrificed his life for nothing. The military then began fighting Mongular with tanks and rockets. The rockets cause the tunnels that Mongular dug to collapse on the nearby volcanic line. Mongular feel into the earth and was consumed by hot lava as the earth crumbled bellow it's feet.
This was actually a really cool episode I enjoyed the battle sequence a lot at the end with the tanks, and rockets. They actually reused some footage from the movie Rodan for the volcanic scene which I thought was a nice easter egg. Mongular was a simple kaiju design basically just a giant mole no special powers or anything just able to dig deep underground. Another great episode of Ultra Q in the books.
